Went to the show in Westminster, CO (AMC Promenade) with some friends and had a great time. Theater was about half-full. Dancers set up in the very back.

Video was very good for the period, only noticed one glitch. Camera work is excellent, showing the band interacting and smiling at each other although a couple of times the camera would just pan to the floor or away from the stage, so i doubt that this was edited much from the original tapes.

Audio was very good although we had to ask them to turn it up at the beginning. Eventually they did. Was a little disappointed in the lack of very low frequencies, but the mix was excellent.

At times, this show reminded me of why I prefer the single drummer period. Instead of being able to groove, Billy and Mickey would occasionally step all over each other rhythmically and it would sound like a muddled mess to me.

Still there were some magical moments. The highlight for me where the 'music played the band' was the jam near the end of 'Man Smart, Woman Smarter'.
